Spokane's Earth Day 2015 Event A Great Day

The weather was beautiful this weekend and people were outside like crazy. SRTC teamed up with the Commute Trip Reduction Program, the Spokane Clean Air Agency and Spokane Transit for a booth at Saturday's Earth Day event. We talked to tons of people about alternatives to driving and signed probably hundreds up for "Undriving Licenses." What was surprising to me was the huge age range of people interested in getting their Undriving License. Even a couple dogs pledged to find a way to get around other than driving. That's two less dogs we'll see behind the wheel folks.
